Last weekend, the Principality of Monaco once again hosted a Formula E race. In its tenth season, the race track in the microstate continued to guarantee action-packed races. Amid numerous collisions and a total of 197 overtakes, the two New Zealanders from Jaguar won the race and were crowned the best drivers of the weekend. Reigning world champion Jake Dennis, on the other hand, can look back on the worst weekend of the season.

After each round of the 2024 Formula E season, our editors award points on a scale between 1 and 10 for all drivers. They are then sorted according to their average "rating score". The rating is based exclusively on driving performance, not the potential of the car or external circumstances.

1. Mitch Evans | Jaguar TCS Racing | 9.2

Since season 7, Mitch Evans has finished on the podium every time in Monaco. After two second places and one third place, he was finally able to celebrate his first race win in the Principality last weekend. It was already clear in free practice that Evans was the man to beat. This was also the case in qualifying, before he made a mistake in the semi-final and gave away a pole position he thought was almost certain and started the race in fourth place behind his team-mate.

In the first half of the race, Evans, together with team-mate Nick Cassidy, took the lead. From then on, Jaguar left nothing to chance and performed a strategic masterstroke. Evans benefited from Cassidy, who was prepared to pave the way to victory for his team-mate on Jaguar's behalf. With his victory, Evans made up ground in the drivers' championship, but is still almost 20 points behind team-mate Cassidy.

2. Nick Cassidy | Jaguar TCS Racing | 9.2

The New Zealander with number 37 always seemed to be just behind Evans when it came to pure time trials. However, a flawless qualifying session put him ahead of Evans for the race. The decisive factors for Cassidy's second place were the attack-mode strategy and the openness for team play. Cassidy was prepared to put his race result behind the team's success leading to the best Jaguar race results of the season and the currently undisputed lead in the teams' standings.

3. Pascal Wehrlein | TAG Heuer Porsche | 8.6

All in all, Pascal Wehrlein can be satisfied with his fifth place. In recent years, Monaco has always been a low point for Porsche. This year, however, it was mainly for their own customer team Andretti that experienced a debacle race. Wehrlein's pole position was well above expectations, and fifth place was a good haul of points. Porsche overcame its Monaco curse and Wehrlein even extended his world championship lead.

Flop of the E-Prix: Jake Dennis | Andretti | 3.6

It was only the second points-less race of the season for Jake Dennis. Nothing went right for Andretti during the visit to the Principality. A poor balance in the car led to the worst qualifying result of the year. A car damage forced Dennis to make a pit stop. After that, he was unable to catch up with the field and crossed the finish line in twentieth place. All in all, a huge disappointment and the loss of important points for the title defence.
